Just a week after it announced that #IronFist
wouldn’t return for a third season, #Marvel
has revealed that another of its #Netflix
shows won’t continue: #LukeCage
. The series aired its second season earlier this summer.
Marvel and #Netflix
confirmed to Deadline that the show “will not return for a third season.” The cancelation comes as a surprise, as it was widely expected to be renewed for an additional season. Unlike Iron Fist, which Marvel indicated might continue on in some form, this reads as a definitive end for the series. It’s a shame, because Luke Cage has consistently been held up as one of the better shows in the franchise, while Iron Fist was widely panned.
Deadline pointed to Marvel and Netflix’s concrete efforts to develop a third season — they stood up a writer’s room for a third season earlier this year — which were stymied by “rising tensions in the past month,” over “creative differences” between Marvel and Netflix over the scripts that have been developed.
